Learning to be Square... Again...
When I was in journalism school, and even after during my first job in Tennessee, it was practically a criminal act to take a square photo. Unless you were shooting Polaroid or medium format - you just didn't do it.
With the advent of camera phones and "cool" Apps - the world is square again. You no longer have to worry about how to design around a vertical or a horizontal image. Square composition is aesthetically calming and there is something inherently "artsy" about the square. Here's some square images from my recent trip to Missoula.
